Now as summer draws to a close and I've learned that another dear one has passed. Bobskoot of Wetcoastscooting passed away in his sleep while on a car trip across the USA. He was doing what he loves, traveling with his wife and visiting with friends. Bob will be sorely missed by many. He reached out and touched so many of us. He had friends around the world. Whether he was passing through an area, or someone else was journeying into his, he would do his best to get together for a visit, or a ride, and to share a nice meal. I think he was one of the glues the bound many of us blogger/riders together.
Ron and I met Bob for the first time in 2010 in Bend Oregon at the first moto-blogger convention as we like to call it. In 2011 he invited us to ride along to Montana to Glacier National Park where we also met Dom of Redleg's Ride, and his family. I often wondered if Bob invited us along and then dropped the bomb that more guests were coming on Dom and family after the fact. No matter. We felt welcomed by all. Bob loved these get togethers, and I think his efforts enriches us all.
